    Research: STAT: Psst, the human genome was never completely sequenced. Some scientists say it should be

    EXCERPT

    "As a matter of truth in advertising, the 'finished' sequence isn't finished," said Eric Lander, who led the lab at the Whitehead Institute that deciphered more of the genome for the government-funded Human Genome Project than any other. "I always say 'finished' is a term of art."

    "It's very fair to say the human genome was never fully sequenced," Craig Venter, another genomics luminary, told STAT.

    "The human genome has not been completely sequenced and neither has any other mammalian genome as far as I'm aware," said Harvard Medical School bioengineer George Church, who made key early advances in sequencing technology.
